Today is the turn of possible the most dandy of all the figures that I have chosen to work on, coming again from another knotel print in my collection, this time it is inspired by an ADC of Marshall Murat.
Sadly my camera is not catching the colour of the uniform quite right here, but the plate also informs us the uniform is Amaranth, a personal favourite colour of the Murat's. Amaranth is neither red nor purple or pink and described as a reddish purple hue or anything in between. Fortunately I have been messing around with my vallejo paints and got a triad I like to use to represent this colour, having had some google fu the best examples of the variety of colours that can be represented are found HERE.
He will certainly cut a dash in the finished Vignette, my intention is to try to make each ADC unique so they stand out as individuals as well as work together in the display.
